The coming week is likely to see most individuals dealing with new arrivals in their lives of one kind or another -- arrivals that will require immediate and ongoing attention. It matters not exactly what this new element in a person's life may be; what is important is that it is likely to bring change -- perhaps subtle and hardly noticeable, perhaps overt and widely recognized. This can, in many cases, actually redefine one's situation in such a way that he may consider himself a very different person as a result. Suffice it to say that the old ways aren't likely to apply after this week -- literally or figuratively, practically or ideologically.
Indeed, this one fact -- that what worked last week will not work next week -- is the key for everyone. It can prove a driving force that leads each individual to accept responsibility for things in a new way, to take charge in no uncertain terms, and effectively to get back on top -- whether the catalytic event is positive or negative.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- What you had planned to do next week will very likely have to be moved up, requiring you to pick up the pace of your preparations. (April 5-April 19) -- Others admire how you can remain seemingly aloof when things get difficult, but in fact, you know you are in over your head.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Being grateful is the key to almost everything. You will want to express your gratitude in ways that no one can misinterpret. (May 6-May 20) -- A rendezvous with an old friend allows you to do more than catch up; a business proposition is made that can yield almost immediate results.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Keep quiet when asked to keep quiet, and speak up when asked to speak up. Such behavior can do much more for you than expected. (June 7-June 20) -- Those who have gotten in your way in the past are likely to yield to you now -- perhaps for a hidden reason.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll want to take care that you're not relinquishing responsibility for something that is actually quite important to you. (July 8-July 22) -- Someone far from home will very likely exert a strong influence on you throughout the week -- with mostly expected results.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may be used to summing things up quickly and neatly for yourself, but not everything can be reduced to a clever saying. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may want to wait for a certain volatile situation to subside before putting a plan into motion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Many things are going to spark memories for you. Ultimately, you may want to revisit a key moment from your past. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Things may not be as you remembered them, but you can still enjoy a nostalgic trip to your old stomping grounds.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may want to go back over your current plans very carefully before putting them into motion. Obstacles might surprise you. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may feel as though your energy and enthusiasm are at an all-time low, but you're actually just getting ready.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- It's been a long time since a certain someone reached out to you. What's keeping you from reaching out yourself? It's a complicated question. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The reaction you get from others may not meet your expectations, and it could compel you to make unanticipated changes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Minor changes reap major benefits. Don't be afraid of tinkering when such adjustments surely serve you well. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Others are interested in what you are doing -- more so, perhaps, than you are yourself!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You and a friend or partner may be separated, but every effort will be made to bring you back together by week's end. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- There's no reason to think that the rift that has developed between you and another must be permanent; a solution is at hand.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Once the momentum builds, you'll find that it's merely a matter of staying the course to finish what you've started. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A rival may be ready to bury the hatchet, but he or she is waiting for you to say something that is long overdue.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The most basic resources will prove the most valuable. You cannot afford to be wasteful or inefficient. (March 6-March 20) -- You can almost certainly satisfy another's high expectations -- and they are very high!
